Anti-Pop Consortium, 'Fluorescent Black' (Big Dada)

Critical Mass
Label:

by Mosi Reeves

Anti-Pop Consortium's obsession with sound, be it analog, digital, or vocal, makes them unique among hip-hop artists; they're like a postmillennial Public Enemy, minus the political oratory. The MC trio rhyme with distinct cadences tuned like instruments, while engineer Earl Blaize compiles keyboards, drums, and software blips into an Afro-surrealist space opera. On their fourth studio album, Priest warns of corporations inserting chips in newborn babies ("The Solution"), while the title track satirizes the depravity of modern youth. Pessimistic omens from an outfit that, as M. Sayyid asserts on "End Game," "designs programming language."
